Nintendo’s Retro Casino Games

Did you know that Nintendo originated as a Japanese playing card company dating back to 1889?
With a rich and interesting history, it wasn’t until 1963 that they started manufacturing games in addition to playing cards. In 1980, the company created a wholly-owned subsidiary, Nintendo of America, Inc. in New York. Nintendo then started to sell the Game & Watch product line in Japan; it was the first portable LCD video game with its own microprocessor, a huge step at the time. Of course, we can’t forget the game Donkey Kong, created by Nintendo artist and video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Also, in 1985, an 8-bit video game console was launched, the best-selling system of its time.

Legend of Zelda Ported to ZX Spectrum – Bandit Gaming

Hmm, what is the over/under on Nintendo dropping the ban hammer on this work in progress featuring the Legend of Zelda franchise? So far, the ZX Spectrum port by Dave Clarke is looking quite good. There are some bugs and some things missing but this is a work in progress.

Fans Port Wolfenstein 3D to Commodore 64 – Bandit Gaming

Okay, before we get too far into this article, this is not a normal Commodore 64 they ported Wolfenstein 3D to. There are a few pieces of additional hardware required to make this one run on actual hardware, or just use Winvice 3.1 if you don’t have actual hardware available. With that said, let’s discuss some Wolfenstein 3D.

Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire

How the Greats Have Fallen – Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire on Android

Is it me or is Sega following in the footsteps of Konami lately? Konami made a Pachinko machine out of Castlevania awhile back. Now, Sega have taken Crazy Taxi and gone completely in a different direction than fans would probably have wanted. Yep, they took the core idea behind Crazy Taxi, making money, and pretty much dropped most of the other things that made the game unique. Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire does have the characters and such, just you are no longer fighting for customers.

Neo Geo Metal Slug

GOG Releases 15 Neo Geo Classics, Most Have Official Support for Linux

If you are a retrogaming fan then you know the name, Neo Geo. This arcade machine turned home console was quite an attraction back in the 1990’s. You were literally getting the arcade game when you bought the home version. Unfortunately, that included the arcade game price too. Thankfully, as time went on, we got decent home ports to consoles such as the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis on up to the Playstation series of consoles and more. Now, we have GOG.com releasing 15 Neo Geo Classics, Linux support is available out of the box for about half of these while the rest have “unsupported Linux” capability.

Haunted Halloween 86 NES

Haunted Halloween 85 and 86, Horror Homebrew Games for NES

It is not all that often that I get to cover something really cool. I know, a lot of you have already gotten, beaten, and probably shelved Haunted Halloween 85 but what about Haunted Halloween 86? This article is more for the people new to homebrew/independent development of games, those that are old hats in this category could probably learn something new also though.

The Grumpy Git : I HATE Monopoly!

 

Well here we are again at Monday again. The miserable day of the week no-one enjoys, so in the tradition of Misery loves company. I am here to make sure you have a total loathing for it.

So today I am going to take a slight punt at the Parker Brothers all time top selling board game Monopoly and probably a few others while I am at it. Feel like disagreeing with me. Let me know in the comments.
